Naval tactical mission trainers (TMTs) will be reconfigurable for different vessel types, and used to deliver individual training across a range of ship systems and subsystems, including Combat Management Systems, sensor, and weapons systems.With potential phases, the UAE NTC program could be worth approximately C$450 million over the next 15 years, the Canadian company said.The UAE Naval Training Center will be located in Taweelah with connectivity to several other naval and air bases throughout the UAE. It is expected to be complete and ready for training by early 2019.CAE has also established CAE Maritime Middle East LLC to serve as the prime contractor and program management company in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Shut-down defense, late run propels Syracuse to win over Maine

first_img Published on November 13, 2012 at 11:45 pm Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 For nearly 30 minutes, Maine gave Syracuse a scare. With 11:19 minutes remaining, the Black Bears were hanging around, trailing by just seven points. Then the Orange proved why it was the team with NCAA tournament hopes and Maine was 0-2.SU went on a 17-0 run over the next 8:41 and held the Black Bears to just four points on one field goal the rest of the way.“Our man-to-man won us the game today,” Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “When you keep people in front of you and you guard, that’s your offense you’re going to have and you’re going to have those kinds of runs.”That run fueled Syracuse in a 68-44 win over Maine on Tuesday night in Orono, Maine. The team used its athleticism and depth to get out in transition and defeat the Black Bears. Orange center Kayla Alexander managed a double-double with 19 points and 12 rebounds, while Elashier Hall keyed the decisive run offensively for the Orange with nine points, seven of which came on jump shots.Hall kick-started the run with a jumper with 10:08 remaining. On the very next possession, Hall knocked down a 3-pointer to stretch the SU lead to 12. Maine didn’t cut the lead to single digits for the rest of the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Black Bears actually matched up with Syracuse in the size department, which is why Hillsman said he insisted on getting out in transition and settling for jump shots instead.“We pushed the ball and we got into our offense early,” Hillsman said. “I thought that was the key. We had to get some early offense and not have to really shrink the floor and cause us problems getting the ball inside.”As they did in the season opener, the freshmen’s contributions both on the floor and in providing depth made the run possible.For the second straight game, Brittney Sykes, Brianna Butler and Cornelia Fondren all started. Sykes led the freshmen with 29 minutes, with Butler right behind with 24. Fondren played just 14, but went 3-for-3 from the field, including a 3-pointer.“We need them,” Hillsman said. “We need their contributions, we need their depth on the court and we have to do everything we can to keep them in the game and keep them playing.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more


first_imgDONEGAL fishermen are opposing barmy new EU laws aimed at banning the practice of throwing fish they can’t sell back overboard.They say they have no choice in the matter…and the EU fails to understand anything about the industry, particularly off the Donegal coast, where fishermen inevitably net species they don’t want and then return them to the sea.The Federation of Irish Fishermen has welcomed the publication by the country’s Marine Institute (MI) and Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) of the “Atlas of Demersal Discarding,” described as an atlas of discarding profiles by the Irish demersal fleet with a “toolbox” of mitigation measures. FIF say the document clearly identifies the complex nature of discarding and provides a range of workable and stock specific potential solutions rather the “simplistic and populist” approach adopted by barmy EU Fisheries  Commissioner Damanaki.FIF Chairman Seán O’Donoghue said:  “This atlas is a positive step by Ireland in addressing in a meaningful way the extent of  discarding in certain demersal fisheries and in putting forward a range of options for reducing discards. Discards must be tackled with a view to their reduction to the lowest practicable level on an EU-wide platform – not just by Ireland.”FIF has “trenchantly” expressed the view that  Commissioner Damanaki’s stated objective for the future Common Fisheries Policy of banning discards and forcing fishermen to land fish which has no prospect of sale –  which would then have to be transported great distances to be processed as fishmeal –  is totally unacceptable, uneconomic and most importantly will not contribute to the sustainable exploitation of stocks.“The Commissioner’s approach demonstrates only a superficial and PR-driven approach to the issue. The EU measures taken must of course address conservation issues but also must be practical and allow the fishing fleets operate in an economic manner,” they say. A key component of the Atlas, say FIF, is the substantial treatment given to modifications to fishing gears and other measures to reduce discards. Irish fishermen already have taken a “leading role” in promoting such measures:For FIF say seasonal closures for cod fisheries off the North coast (Greencastle Box) and off the South-east coast (Celtic Sea Box), promoted and supported by the Irish industry are proving highly beneficial with a resultant major improvement in Celtic Sea cod stocks for example and whose value is accepted scientifically at EU level.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved.The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comFISHERMEN OPPOSE BARMY EU FISH-DUMPING LAWS was last modified: November 8th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:barmy EU lawsdonegalfishermenlast_img read more
